Skyline High School Track

Join IFPD for the first ever Beat the Heat event! Bring your kids out for a fun athletic event along side Idaho Falls Police Officers and other community partners that serve our area.

This is a free family focused event where school aged kids can "Beat the Heat" by challenging the Idaho POST Fitness tests, the same test Idaho Falls Police Officers have to pass at POST.  

  • Vertical Jump
  • Sit Ups
  • Push Ups
  • 300-Meter Sprint
  • 1.5 Mile Run

We'll also have police vehicles and equipment on display, and plenty of officers there to interact with kids and families. Several community partners will also have booths and activities. 


This event is free, but one registration per child is required. Children are invited to participate in all events, but not required to. Children should wear comfortable athletic friendly attire, bring a water bottle, and wear sunscreen.

Are you a business, non-profit, or government agency interested in hosting a booth or "sponsoring" a POST event? Looking for a volunteer opportunity? Click here!
